I was still sleeping. However, I'm taking advantage of Pi day to celebrate with a fabulous Raspberry-Peach pie from a bakery in a small town here in west-central Nebraska. villagepiemaker.com Wish I could save a piece for everyone on the forum. I am saving it until after the concert tomorrow though.
cdennyb said"Pi is an infinite, non-repeating decimal - meaning that every possible number combination exists somewhere in pi. Converted into ASCII text, somewhere in that infinite string of digits is the name of every person you will ever love, the date, time, and manner of your death, and the answers to all the great questions of the universe. Converted into a bitmap, somewhere in that infinite string of digits is a pixel-perfect representation of the first thing you saw on this earth, the last thing you will see before your life leaves you, and all the moments, momentous and mundane, that will occur between those two points.
All information that has ever existed or will ever exist, the DNA of every being in the universe, EVERYTHING: all contained in the ratio of a circumference and a diameter."
Sounds kinda like the, 2009 Nicholas Cage movie, "Knowing".
Well, at least folks weren't expecting some apocalypse like they were for Y2K (if anybody remembers that) LOL.
I didn't do much specifically for Pi Day, but my daughter borrowed my little "Raspberry Pi" computer to spend much of the day doing Minecraft. So I will count it as "somewhat observed".
@cdennyb: Yeah, and every winning lottery number is in there somewhere. Good luck sorting it out though, since all the losing numbers would be in there as well. LOL
I find it kinda interesting that there is a sort of regular pattern to it, even though it doesn't repeat. Or maybe the pattern is due to the type of chart?
